Ultima’s New Supercar Is Here: The EvolutionApril 9th, 2015
Ultima, the coolest car company that shares a name with a series of computer games started by Richard Garriott, just released a new car called the Evolution. Like other Ultimas, it’s very powerful, weighs next to nothing, and looks like a scale model of a LMP1 car. Basically, it’s perfect.
The Evolution weighs only 2,094 lbs. and can be had in flavors ranging from 350 hp to 1,020 hp. In top level trim, the Evolution hits 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds, 100 in 4.9, and 150 in 8.9, and continues up to a top speed of 240 mph. 0-100-0 only takes 8.8 seconds. Expect to see the Evolution taking some track records from its predecessor soon. Also expect to see a roofless version that will replace the Ultima Can-Am. No word on pricing yet, but I’d wager it’s a little more than your Miata.
